Avast Software to ship Avast AVH7X server software, hardware and peripherals to PC buyers
APSIOTRONIC, Spain (AP) Avast will begin shipping Avast software and hardware to PC and mobile device buyers in Europe and Asia, the company announced Friday.
Avast is the maker of the Avast Antivirus software and antivirus suite.
The Avast server software is used in a wide range of computing devices, including tablets and phones, as well as desktop computers, servers and gaming consoles.
The company says that customers can expect to receive Avast hardware and software as early as June.
It says it expects to have shipped its first Avast-powered server in July.
The company says the new Avast servers are based on the Avos-based Avast Core, a product that’s designed to scale to many more devices.
Avadnex, a Dutch software provider that sells Avast and Avast Server software, will provide the Avadnex platform for its customers, and Avadex is the company’s primary server software vendor.
It has a presence in over a dozen countries and is also supplying server software for some of the biggest internet services providers in the world, including Google and Amazon.
Avista, another Dutch software vendor, will be providing Avista-based software to customers.
The software will be built on the Apache Java platform, Avast’s own open source server software.
The Avast announcement comes after Avast said it had shipped about 10,000 servers in the second half of 2016.
That includes more than 9,000 Avast Servers for PCs and servers, Avadax servers, and several hundred Avast Cloud servers.
